DVB vs. H/W:
DVB refers to digital TV, where as H/W refers to analog hardware MPEG2 TV cards (e.g. Hauppauge PVR250/350/150MCE). H/W cards contain a MPEG2 chip which alleivates work being done on the computer. They are quite well supported by MP, if they are on the supported list.

DVB-T is digital TV - terristrial. It is the standard that Aust uses for free-to-air digital TV. The most popular cards are the DNTV Live! card, Dvico cards/boxes, Hauppauge Nova-T.

DVB-S is digital TV - satellite, and DVB-C is digital TV - Cable (note: foxtel does not use this standard).

Finally, S/W refers to analog software TV cards (Hauppauge WinTV). These cards are usually the cheapest, but aren't supported very well in MP and require the computer to do a lot of work.

Just a short sidenote @doskabouter: It is possible to run MP as system user and give the system user access to a network share, at least in a domain environment. I am doing this in my setup. See my earlier post: More or less regular stutter in live TV and recorded TV (setup of MP TV Backend on VM)

Well, that was easy, thanks a lot :) (unfortunately, this did not solve the initial problem, for some reason MediaPortal cannot tune into a few channels which work using a different live-TV program, but I'll try to elaborate a bit further and then post in a different thread)

I'm now using the Digital Devices Cine S2 V7A. I had 2 blue screens when recording + network load (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION with NSIS und tcpip.sys in stacktrace) but that seamed related to my network card: after installing the driver from the mainboard website, it runs stable. I'm still surprised that the power delivered by the PCIe...

Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...
